I've watch Mowins so much, I had no idea who this post was talking about.
I guess maybe that doesn't bode well for Lynch's status this week. Please tell me that they'll get Beth Mowins to call this game somehow!
Nothing. This is USC - supremely talented, but always finding ways to lose a game or two to inferior teams. They have been that way for years, even during the Carroll era. They get up for big games and look great, and then lose to unranked teams. It's in their DNA.
IMO, no way he leaves NW for any other program. I think the school and football program are that important to him. Now, in the unlikely scenario that the NFL comes calling one day, that could be different.
Apparently, injuries are only an excuse when you play in the Big 12.
That's the equivalent of "no offense, but..."
Butch is having a tough time without Kelly's coatails to ride.
Maybe they could get Franklin back.
The interesting wrinkle to the Maryland coaching saga (especially since they're in the B1G now), is that the plan not that long ago was for assistant coach James Franklin to take over for Friedgen. Interesting how things can change so quickly, especially if you have the guy in house, and fail to keep him.
Link, or it didn't happen.
Take a look back at all of the LBs that Pagac coached (1978-1995), and it is pretty damn amazing.
Bert because I cannot, under any circumstances, root for the soulless demon that patrols Alabama's sideline.
Bravo Ramzy. Bravo. This is perhaps the best write up I've regarding the struggles this season. Well reasoned, and calm...and you call yourself a FAN!?!?
If Urban deserves credit for anything so far this season, it is this - he appears, at least publicly, to not be completely obsessed with beating every team into a pulp. He appears concerned, but not worried; content, but not overjoyed; involved, but not meddling. Much like a success manager, Meyer is letting his coaches, QB, and WRs work through a rough inning, in order to be challenged, grow, and improve (so long as it does not cost the team victories). I was worried for a couple of quarters this past Saturday, but am optimistic about where the offense can go from this point forward. Here's to hoping for, more than anything else, a victory on Saturday that indicates that the Bucks have improved, not from last year, but simply from last week.
OK State-WVU should be fun. Also hoping Houston beats SMU even worse than Baylor did. It's a shame that NW-UM isn't on a network with more households.
Has any game lost more luster over the last two weeks than UGA-Tenn? Lol
I love what Meyer said - (paraphrasing) The focus has been on perfection, instead of execution and improvement. I've maintained all along that their biggest problem is that they're trying to blow out everyone, rather than just focusing on execution. IMO, they spend too long looking for, and try too hard to hit, the big play. It feels like they want a TD every down. That's fine on XBOX and Playstation, but has held back the offense in real life. Here's to hoping that this slow start has galvanized the team, and they begin peaking at the right time. The November swing that will hopefully continue into December and culminate in mid-January is when this team really needs to be hitting its stride, not now against also-rans.
Hate to bring it up, but that team's NCAA Tournament exit was probably the most painful of my life (at least since losing to the Fab Five). As good as the Oden-Conley-Cook-Lewis team was, that team Deshaun and Sully's freshman year was the best I've seen at OSU. All they were missing was a true center, but were on lockdown defensively and deadly from behind the arc. They just picked the wrong time to go cold from the field and got a really bad draw as the #1 overall seed.
The amount of time that we "wasted" in college playing GoldenEye, NFL Blitz, NBA Live, NCAA Football, and Halo were 100% worth it.
There aren't a ton of safeties in the HOF, but he should be one of them.
I LOVE Cracker Barrel, but truer words than these have never been spoken -
You can say a lot of things about a man walking out of a Cracker Barrel, but "There goes one tough son of a bitch" isn't one of them.
Yeah, that's a fact.
I'm sorry, but I must disagree wholeheartedly regarding how we remember things too fondly. I'm not talking about how we remember J.T. like he was perfect and made no mistakes. I'm talking about this statement -
Take Nintendo 64's GoldenEye, for example. Every child of the 90s swears it's a game they know and love, but if they went back and played it they'd realize it's unplayable compared to today's games.
GoldenEye is like Tecmo Super Bowl or Road Rash, even though it's dated, it is still awesome. Unfortunately, it is difficult to re-create those PBR and Doritos filled nights throwing knives and using slappers once you have kids.
You couldn't smooth a sheet if you had a hot date with a babe....I lost my train of thought.
He'll probably be the next one presented with an external oppprtunity. If they can retain Fick and Warriner long term, they're going to be in very good shape. I could be wrong, but I think there are many who may view Fick as the unofficial head coach in waiting.
Anyone but the Yankees or Cardinals.
